Projects Update - National Trails Coalition (ON)
This program was announced at the end of June. In total the OTC had 93 enquiries for funding. Snowmobile had 89 projects come forward and ORV 19, for a total of 201 expressions of interest.
There have been several logistical issues to work out, namely find sharing on projects, file completions, and use of other funds. The NTC is finalizing approvals at this time.
NOTE: the NTC is waiting for all jurisdictions to report in, and finalize all contracts before providing more specific information on grants in provinces or territories. We can therefore only go as fast as the slowest province. As they roll out you will be contacted.
The NTC also hired a National Program Facilitator - his name is Roger Pelletier. He can be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
